What Would Buddy Do?
Trent Cole prefers wild and fair chase conditions

did we need to shoot at the pregnant one

I guess I had heard it mentioned that Eagles defensive end Trent Cole was into hunting, but I had no idea how into hunting he was until I checked out the web site of his hunting and hunting video production company, Cole Outdoor Productions (via Philly.com and the 700Level).

Whilst I’m not entirely sure what Cole Outdoor Productions actually does (do they just make the videos, or do they take you out and shoot video of other people’s hunting exploits?), I have to say I learned a lot in my brief time on his web site:

1. So these are the gun owners who actually want to hunt.  I’m pretty anti-gun/ pro-gun control, but, um, I guess these are the folks who aren’t kidding when they claim they want firearms for sport hunting purposes.  Though it looks like they mostly use bows and arrows.  I don’t know if that’s more or less scary.

2. They try to play fair.  In case you were getting squeamish, you’ll need to wait until at least the next few paragraphs.  Cole Outdoor Productions stresses that they only hunt their “game under wild and fair chase conditions.”  Right.  No word yet if that includes getting chipped by the tight end, though fair doesn’t seem to include bows and arrows for the deer.

3.  In case you wanted to send Trent Cole an e-mail, his address is listed on the front page of the site, under “Cameras for sale.”  Selling cameras, Trent?  Huh?  Can’t be any margins there.

4.  Dude, they shot at the pregnant one?  Video from the site presented below, with minimal commentary, though I must note that I was actually surprised that they shoot at the pregnant ones.  Also, if you’re into seeing Bambi take an arrow in the chest, this isn’t the video for you.

As a city dweller I tended to assume that Big Buck Hunter reflected the rules of engagement: “Shooting an innocent ewe or doe is forbidden”, and you lose your turn. Not sure whether the idea was that you’re keeping the target population up, the chivalrous rules are designed to encourage and therefore males to play the game, or whether bucks are just inherently guilty.
